Port of Long Beach
Located on the old Navy Base in the Port of Long Beach, Pier T is a 380-acre shipping terminal that includes both truck and rail facilities to move the cargo out of the Port area. In the container storage facility, Griffith Company placed two million cubic yards of excavation and earth fill, using on-site trucking in addition to importing the materials from off-site.
Our crews then installed more than 81,000 linear feet of water, sewer, and storm drain. To accommodate an extensive crane system needed to move containers, our specialty concrete crews installed more than 32,000 linear feet of concrete crane pads and hatch cover facilities.
What’s more, our electrical subcontractor installed “reefer” utility outlets to plug in nearly 300 refrigerated container boxes. And to facilitate the shipping of commerce, over 81,000 LF of steel railroad track was installed. To make possible the timely completion of Pier T, our crews placed 197,000 CY of CMB and 425,000 tons of asphalt paving in just six months. Lastly, we installed an intricate system to control traffic and yard storage, including K-rail, signage and striping. Thanks to our crews working around the clock, we were able to meet the schedule in the original allotted time.
